“We cannot change what we are not aware of, and once we are aware, we cannot help but change” – Sheryl Sandberg

As ambitious women, we often feel alone. The reality is that many of us struggle with the same challenges both personally and professionally, but we solve them in isolation. We need a vehicle through which to share best practices across companies and industries, and learn together in our collective experience.

We need a way to: Redefine! Reinvest! Refresh!

The Pittsburgh Technology Council and Align Leadership invite you to connect with us for a bold and results-driven leadership experience that tackles provocative and timely issues facing all leaders today. This experience will help you:

REDEFINE your goals and objectives, both professional and personally. You will partner with a community of women, across companies and industries, to celebrate your successes (so far), target “what’s next”, explore resources and options, clarify direction and share best practices. You will become part of a peer network that will continue to be a source of resources and support for years to come.

REINVEST in yourself. Now, more than ever, women leaders need a broad knowledge of practical business skills that will expand their leadership capacity. Learn to create a powerful “personal brand” that will propel you forward. Understand how to engage and enlist advocates, mentors and sponsors to provide solid business guidance and be a champion for you along the way.

REFRESH your career! REFRESH your life! REFRESH yourself! As part of this program, we’ll be asking you what YOU are struggling with; what has YOU stuck or feeling like you aren’t living to your potential; what YOU need to achieve your best self! Based on your answers, our facilitator, Christy Uffelman, will tailor the program to provide you with the tools and knowledge she has learned from working with over 200 industry leaders each year! Her goal is to provide you with the best of best!

Who should attend?

* High performing women that are looking to grow professionally more in two days than they have grown in the past year.

* Women who feel stuck where they are currently and want a “jump start” to get to that next step in their life and career

* Women that are looking to be invested in and invest in others over the course of two intensive days.

The EDGE Experience is typically 9 months but we have distilled the best elements of EDGE and put them into a two-day intensive retreat to jump start your life and professional development. Believe us, you don’t want to miss this!

What are others saying?

Diana Bellini

"The retreat with EDGE was a great experience for me. It was the beginning of my transformation for this year. It gave me some knowledge about myself and skills to put into practice at different situations. The big take away was to give myself self-care and permission to do things that I enjoy. I often give my family, work, and extracurricular activities a priority over my alone time.  The EDGE program was good wake up call to give myself the time to reflect and make immediate changes to my everyday life.” ~ Diana Bellini, Vice President, Relationship Executive at BNY Mellon. 

Ingrid"Sharing our vulnerabilities instead of simply sharing our successes, helped to create an openness that I have yet to experience anywhere else. Attending the EDGE retreat did not simply expand my network and leadership skills, it facilitated meaningful, valuable connections that will last a lifetime." ~ Ingrid Cook, Founder at SHzoom

Mary Moore"The Edge retreat was truly the kickstart I needed to reset my frame of mind and therefore my career path. Christy Uffelman immediately made the attendees feel like lifelong friends and we walked away a trusted network and each other’s advocates. Any woman looking for a new perspective and practical career tools should attend the Edge retreat.” ~ Mary Moore, Strategic Marketing Director at SAE International.
